Truecrypt with Dropbox Automation ?
Posted on 2010-11-08
Im being using Dropbox for some while now and I must say that I am really happy about it and I feel "secure" about my data being accessible without having to back it up...
But my concern is security and privacy.. Ive been reading about it and it seems that the combination truecrypt+dropbox is great since dropbox works on a byte diff sync so he doesn't upload the whole file again and again !!!
I tried it and created a truecrypt volume with 75Mb (for testing). the first time it took over 1 hour to sync. ( we have slow connection).
then when it was done..I opened that volume and added a small file (around 500k).
when I closed the volume I noticed that within 1-2 minutes the dropbox had finished.. So I am assuming that it works. !!! your comments are more than welcome here...
Now to my real problem...
Since using truecrypt is the solution ... I need to be able to automate it...
So what I need is a script that would open that truecrypt volume... mount it and copy the appropriate files to it and then close and dismount the volume so that the syncing can occur.
any idea how I can do this ?
